Stoneforge Mystic and Steelshaper's Gift are probably out of budget, but Relic Seeker, Stonehewer Giant, Taj-Nar Swordsmith and Steelshaper Apprentice are pretty budget ways to make sure you keep finding your important equipment most of your games.

I spot someone looking to play my favourite dragon!

First off, what's your budget like? You're running cards such as Mana Drain so I'm going to assume a high budget at least for this comment.

Starting with your lands, you generally want to avoid cards that always enter tapped. This especially goes for a more aggressive list like this where you don't want to be waiting until the next turn for your mana. I recommend dropping all of the lands you have that enter tapped including Temple of the False God, and instead look at picking up others like Adarkar Wastes, Prairie Stream, Seachrome Coast, Nimbus Maze, Skycloud Expanse, Port Town, or even just replacing them with basic Islands/Plains. If you have a lot of money to burn there's always cards like Ancient Tomb, Cavern of Souls, and of course fetchlands.

I highly recommend picking up a Stoneforge Mystic and Batterskull if you can afford them, they go extremely well together. Umezawa's Jitte is another really good piece of equipment but also is a bit more on the expensive side. I recommend cutting Whispersilk Cloak as Shroud makes you unable to equip Ojutai with anything, and Swiftfoot Boots is redundant due to Ojutai's natural hexproof. If you want another way to protect him, there's cheap options such as Sword of Vengeance which gives him a tonne of stuff.

For enchantments definitely look at Aqueous Form, cheap and fills the niche you were going for with Whispersilk Cloak. Battle Mastery and Daybreak Coronet are also fairly good Auras.

As for other cards there's Fabricate, Steelshaper's Gift, and Enlightened Tutor if you want to get pricy. I also recommend cutting Karn's Temporal Sundering, Time Warp, and Ojutai, Soul of Winter since they won't help you in your overall gameplan much.

Apologies for the wall of text, but I hope some of this helps!

KylerStar on Syr Haakon's Big Sister

Luminous Broodmoth might be a good include. Has decent value on it's own, but goes infinite with Colossus Hammer.

To be fair though, has no synergy with the knights theme. Also being the only non Knight might not be worth the inclusion of Ashes of the Fallen or Conspiracy. Although if you found enough non knight cards that really do deserve a spot in the deck it may be a nice package. Stoneforge Mystic Comes to mind.

Just a fun idea even thought it might not be worth the include.

Edit: Just read the last part of your descryption. QQ

How would you feel about Stoneforge Mystic in place of the trinket mage. can fetch either equipment a turn earlier and can avoid a counterspell for the equipment (i know, they could counter the mystic. maybe they're tapped out casting something else). or a raw fetch Steelshaper's Gift.

mccabej140: White has pure card draw in the forms of Mentor of the Meek, Wall of Omens, Bygone Bishop, Alms Collector, Dawn of Hope, Mangara, the Diplomat, Thraben Inspector, Scout's Warning and To Arms! (from a quick gatherer search).

In addition, it has artifact and enchantment based draw/tutor in the form of Enlightened Tutor, Sram, Senior Edificer, Puresteel Paladin, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, Kor Spiritdancer and Mesa Enchantress to name a few.

That seems like plenty of options for card draw/tutors in white. And while seom of these are limitied to artifacts/equipment, you can't just write these off becuase your specific deck isn't heavy in that area. It's like saying that green's tutoring is crap becuase you can't tutor instants despite thefact that green has some of the best creature tutors.

"Fun" is also not an argument here. Just becuase you haven't played with or against stax decks and just becuase you don't find them fun does not mean that that you can just write the entire acrhitype off. There are plenty of people who really enjoy playing those decks and now you're effectively telling those people how to play Magic.

Some players don't like counterspells - does that mean that we shouldn't play them? Now blue has a big void until late game. Blue needs more ramp! it has to rely on artifacts, that's not fair to blue!

But the above logic is flawed. Counterspells exist and giving blue ramp would make it more powerful. Just like giving white a crapload of unrestriced draw. Stax exists and you can't just pretend it doesn't becuase you don't like playing it/against it. White exists on a balance between having draw and having stax and that balance is important.

channelfireball12345: see above.

I would ask the question to everyone here - if white has such bad card draw, then what's stopping you from splashing a second colour to fix the deficit? Why is there such a push to build mono-white decks?

Kaweiwu on Pattern Recognition #168 - Nahiri

Very cool article! :D Exept one thing. How is Stoneforge Mystic not Nahiri, the Lithomancer?!! They wear the same outfit. It even has the same red ribbon on the left arm.They have the exact same face and Stoneforge Mystic is floating rocks (the litho.. mancy thing) xd Like at the very least, Its Nahiri depicted on the card. Maybe Wizards of the coast later decided to use the art of stoneforge for nahiri, but its literally the same person

Not helping with cuts but maybe good ol' Stoneforge Mystic as well? it's a body that tutors for Equipment and provides some situational "ramp"/"flash" too. Maybe instead of the Shikari unless you got a special purpose in mind?

zapyourtumor on Kefnet The Equiped

The deck does seem a bit all over the place though. I'm not really seeing the synergy between Kefnet the Mindful and equipment? Why is stacking equipments on kefnet good besides the fact that it has indestructible? Plus, what do you do if your hand has less than seven cards? (which will happen a lot) This makes all ur stuff on kefnet useless if it cant attack or block.

Porphyry Nodes is one of my favorite cards, but here it'll just kill off ur PP (haha funny yes) which we sort of want to keep on the battlefield as a draw engine. Not sure why there's 4x Fact or Fiction either.

You should probably include some spot removal like Path to Exile. Budget option is Condemn. Some sweepers better than fumigate are Wrath of God and Day of Judgment.

Problem with equipment on a budget is that most of the only decent equipments (Batterskull, enemy-colored mirrodin swords like Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice etc) are all expensive and basically only work well with stuff like Stoneforge Mystic. If you're leaning into the Puresteel Paladin 0 equip cost, you can run stuff like Colossus Hammer. Dunno
